With over 600 pages of images and factsheets, this website is a good starting point to learn something of the wildlife of Southeast Asia. There are over 200 species of reptile and 150 species of mammal featured here, including many elusive, smaller mammals such as flying squirrels, shrews and murids. My factsheets tend not to focus too closely on the depressing aspects of the rampant trade in the region's wildlife - I leave that to the experts from Traffic, whose articles can be reached from the News Links section and in the links below.

On 1st January a new initiative was launched on this website. It's a simple, online journal called 'Southeast Asia Vertebrate Records (SEAVR)' - click here to learn more.  The short documents uploaded to SEAVR are easy to read and informative. They will, hopefully, play a role in documenting interesting wildlife finds made by nature enthusiasts.
